Totally agree that it is hard to find a better 84 show. Worchester,MA shows in the Fall come close, but I think the solid, energetic playing & the excellent jamming, especially coming out of He's Gone, make this THE top show of 84. I'm also not a huge 80's fan, I tend to stick to shows prior to 80..occasionally I'll grab some nice 80-82 shows & 87-90..but this show completely satisfies.

Yep, it was on a sunday, the devil's day. I remember it was really windy! For about an hour. Then it settled down. After that, a really fine day with the dead in fine form. Phil was just great.They had his bass turned up for a change. That song by Brent... "Don't Need Love" That one was strange. The crowd was buzzing in confusion. But all in all...they all sounded like Europe 72! They really did!

Subject: Best show of 1984
Can anyone find me a better show from '84? The band was absolutely flawless this evening (in as much as a Dead show can be flawless)! The happiness, the synergy, and the pure raw jamming power were in full-force this evening at the Cal Expo. A magical venue indeed.

Each song is fantastically performed. Jerry is in rare form, Brent is key-clicking his toy piano, Phil's bass is big and loud; Bird Song, TLEO, Stranger, and even songs like My Brother Esau and Might as Well are especially hot.

The sound quality is pristine. Enjoy this one!
